After a presentation to the Television Critics Association in Pasadena, Calif., Nina Tassler, the president of CBS Entertainment, warned of other potential potential daytime changes to both the NY Times and the NY Post. She said that ”ATWT” is also facing “ratings challenges” and that CBS is “looking at all of daytime very carefully. “It is hard to say (if it is safe).
Ms. Tassler said that CBS had taped three game-show pilots, including Let’s Make a Deal when searching for a replacement for Guiding Light. That indicates the network might have a potential replacement ready to go if it decides to cancel As the World Turns. “ATWT” debuted in April 1956.
